Niccolo Machiavelli, Italian author, said, “Men in general judge more by the sense of sight than by the sense of touch, because everyone can see, but only a few can test by feeling.”
“Test by feeling” refers to intuition. Those weird feelings we sometimes get. My first marriage was like that. Four days before I said “I do” a strange wave of emotion flowed through me. It was a feeling of dread. However, I ignored the dread because it didn’t make any sense. Within the year my wife moved out while I was at work, taking everything except my clothes and a bottle of aspirin.
Back then I knew nothing about intuition. When pushed for decisions I would gather a few facts, and then pack those facts with logical guesses. As we know, my applied guesses led to messes.
Florence Shinn, American author, said, “Intuition is a spiritual faculty and does not explain, but simply points the way.”
Bill Gates, American genius and co-founder of Microsoft, said, “Often you have to rely on intuition.”
Truth is, nobody has to. We are free to ignore our feelings and push forward. That is exactly what I did during the first half of my life. It was only after I got sick and tired of fighting with reality and trying to push water uphill that I began searching for more effective ways.
As Albert Einstein said, “The only real valuable thing is intuition.”
Therefore, gain faith in your intuition and everything else will fall into place.
